i was at the kelvin today with my eldest son who is nearly 10 and the river was in a good condition after all the heavy rain the water seems to have cleared and is now in a prime fishing condition with plenty of small seatrout making their way up the river with most of them being around the pound mark and some a bit bigger which gives me a good level of interest which i will take back with me later in the week when i will stay on the river until dark to see if i can manage to get my hands on a good sized seatrout as this is one of my aims this year as is my aim in getting a salmon of over the 15 pound mark which would be a great achievement for anyone on the kelvin so i look forward to the first sign of a good sized salmon run as ill be checking the river frequently over the next few weeks for those first signs of tourists on the march upstream and then it will be long days with rod in hand chasing what must be one of the best fights you will ever experience in fresh water that's for sure .

the fly fishing i will also need to get my act together with too as I've spent allot of money on this type of fishing and if I'm really honest I've not been doing as much fishing as i intended to be doing this year ,but I'm sure this will be sorted out in the next few weeks with the seatrout and salmon in the river as well as good brown trout fishing all at once its one of the highlights for most of the fisherman on the river kelvin and i look forward to meeting the same old faces and hopefully some new ones to as i love to hear of new methods and different opinions about how to fish the river whether it be with bait or fly i am always looking to pick up any new tips to add to my little book ,i am also intending to get back into my photography as i want to have an indepth photographic diary on pools and riffels that the river has to offer so when the river is up i know what lies under the surface as ive found that really helpfull in the past for fishing nyphs and wet flys so until next time bye for now i i hope that i can offer something abit more exciting for you to read as right now im just trying to keep the words coming as you can probably see .....
